Woman Accused of Embezzling Nearly $700K From Law Firm

A Vermont woman is accused of embezzling nearly $700,000 from a law firm where she worked as a legal secretary, paralegal and bookkeeper.

Catherine McKinney of Hartland was indicted by a grand jury in Rutland on Wednesday.

The 61-year-old McKinney worked for Myers Associates PLLC for 15 years and left in January.

The indictment alleges she used the money to pay personal credit card bills and other debts and issuing forged checks.

McKinney did not return phone messages seeking comment.
